Saving and advantages with Aqua Unique® magnetic water treatment

 

 

New pipelines:

New pipes remain free from limescale deposits, resulting in a considerably extended life expectancy of the pipeline installation. The Aqua Unique magnetic water treatment system reduces both surface and turbulence corrosion, while hastening the formation of a protective coating against corrosion within the pipes.

Existing pipelines:

Existing limescale deposits become porous, break up into minute fragments and are flushed out of the pipeline with the water in suspension. Rust and other corrosive compounds can also be dissolved if they are mixed with limescale.

 

A large part of the dissolved lime and rust deposits are commonly precipitated, i.e. in the water heater from which they can easily be washed out. Immediately following the installation of the water treatment system, regular wash out of the water heater and rinsing of filters, magnetic strainers and aerators is recommended weekly. These procedures should be carried out for a minimum period of 2-3 months.

 

These procedures may have to be carried out for a longer period of time depending on the quantity of limescale and rust. When the pipelines are free from deposits, the formation of a protective coating against corrosion begins.

 

Pumps

Pumps that remain free from lime-scale build up have a considerably extended life expectancy. (i.e.  reduced maintenance, better efficiency, reduced energy consumption).


Avoiding limescale build-up in the pump, reduces pressure loss problems considerably.

 

New water heaters:

Assuming a maximum temperature of 70° C, new water heaters will remain free from limescale deposits on the heating coils/elements and tank walls. A minimal amount of lime may be precipitated as sludge.

Pressure valves and mixing valves also remain free from limescale, thus avoiding overpressure and adjustment problems.

This results in a safe and continuous hot water supply. At temperatures over 70° C, the amount of lime sludge will increase accordingly, however the heating coils/elements and tank walls will continue to remain free from limescale build-up. The results are high energy savings and considerably extended life expectancy.

 

Existing water heaters:

Existing limescale deposits from the heating coils/elements and tank walls will become porous and peel off. The resulting precipitated sludge can easily be removed, either by filtration or simply by washing out the tank.

Due to the insulation effect of the limescale, the removal of the limescale build-up results in energy savings and a considerably extended life expectancy.

 

New plate heat
exchangers

Temperatures < 70° C.:
Assuming a maximum temperature of, new plate heat exchangers remain free from limescale build-up. The installation of a Aqua Unique magnetic water treatment system, will extend the maintenance interval of the PHE by at least 3-4 times that of the norm. In addition the plates can commonly be cleaned with water jet and brush instead of the typical acid-cleaning.

Costs related to reduced heat transfer, acid-cleaning, servicing and maintenance are reduced considerably.

 

Temperatures > 70° C.:
The precipitation of lime-sludge starts at temperatures over 70° C. In systems with little or no water circulation, the lime-sludge can become lodged in the bottom of the exchanger plates and if not rinsed out the sludge will eventually adhere to the plates.


Even under such circumstances the installation, of an Aqua Unique magnetic water treatment system, will extend the maintenance interval of the PHE by at least 3-4 times that of the norm. In addition the plates can usually be cleaned with a brush and water jet instead of the typical acid-cleaning.

 

PHE's with relatively powerful circulation, will flush the lime-sludge through the plates, and into either a buffer tank, storage water heater or a filtration unit.

Existing plate heat exchangers:

Existing lime deposits can be softened and removed from blocked plate heat exchangers, assuming a good degree of water circulation exists, and the temperature is below 65-70° C.


However in most cases, we recommend that the PHE is cleaned, prior to the installation of a magnetic water treatment system. This is due to the physical problems in flushing out the limescale/stone deposits through the very small gaps between the plates.

 

Concerning extended cleaning intervals, we refer to the information above on new PHE's.

 

Washing machines

Heating elements remain free from lime deposits, while existing lime deposits are broken down and precipitated in to the lint filter. The benefits include more efficient energy usage and a considerably longer life expectancy.

In addition, due to the fact that the Aqua Unique system reduces surface tension, costs related to washing, rinsing and softening products, can be reduced by up to 30 %.
